Given the resurrected discussion regarding Traveller 4 brings up an interesting idea. I had thought about putting the time frame of my sector at around 1100 for the 3rd Imperium. However, putting it back roughly a thousand years or so would put it about contemporaneous with T4, or in that vicinity. The Long Night and break-up of the Rule of Man would not have that much effect to the Rimward of Terra, given the distances involved. That would also make the mixture of Piper's nuclear-electric power packs and the small cold fusion plants much more likely, as the cold fusion plants would be just appearing. Jump-4 would be the top Jump Drive, so that the slower Hyperdrive ships would still be quite competitive, even the one parsec a month ones. In addition, I would not have to worried about Terra being occupied by the Imperium, and with the breakdown, totally ignoring it would not be a problem at all. It would also get rid of a bunch of Tech Level 15 goodies that would mess things up.

I need to give this some serious thought.
